potential claims on behalf of investors of Immunomedics, Inc.
("Immunomedics" or the "Company") (NASDAQ:IMMU) concerning possible
violations of federal securities laws. The investigation focuses on
certain statements issued by the Company concerning Immunomedics'
business and financial prospects.
Immunomedics is a biopharmaceutical company focused on the development

autoimmune disorders and other serious diseases. The Company's product
Veltuzumab isa humanized anti-CD20 antibody, in the subcutaneous

Company's agreement with Nycomed GmbH to develop, manufacture and
commercialize Veltuzumab has been terminated.
According to the Form 8-K, Nycomed was acquired by Takeda Pharmaceutical
Company in September 2011. Immunomedics previously notified Nycomed of
its concern about delays in the product's advancement, and on May 14,
2013, notified Nycomed that Nycomed was in material breach of the
agreement and that the agreement would terminate if the breaches
remained uncured. On October 3, 2013, Takeda notified Immunomedics that
it considers the agreement as terminated.
